Ort Receives 50,000 Gold Roubles

The Russian section of the Joint Distribution Committee has appropriated 50,000 gold roubles to the “Ort” for the development of agriculture among the Jews in White Russia. The money will be used not only for agricultural facilities, but also to support the new settlers in the Odessa district during the experimental period.
